A Spanish nurse who treated an Ebola victim would be the first person to contract the disease outside Africa, if her final results come in positive as the initial results already have.

According to the BBC, the nurse tested positive for Ebola in initial tests and doctors are awaiting final results.

The nurse was part of a team responsible for the treatment of the Spanish Priest, Manuel Garcia, who died of the deadly disease on September 25, 2014 after contracting it in Sierra Leone.

Manuel Garcia, a priest and medical director of the Hospital Order of San Juan de Dios, was infected with the deadly disease as he tended to victims in the Western city of Lunsar.
